  • If they aren't catching focus they're not even needed : ) On every Pentax/Ricoh digital camera I've ever owned, center point was what worked best, especially in low light.  If I wanted it otherwise ...
  • I understood why Apple discontinued Aperture, even though it was what I had been committed to and liked it well enough.   I have no idea why, all this time later after a slow start, Photos has ...
  • Because it's release version 1.0.  : ) BTW, I'm totally with you on Optimized Storage. Reminds me of the check boxes in iTunes syncing.  Check the box for this feature with potentially ...
  • I haven't used GraphicConverter for image tweaking for ages, but I still use it for its great viewing prowess.  You can perform just about any kind of file movement or etc. with just a keystroke ...
  • I find using any of the many available plugins for Firefox to be the easiest.  Mostly use video downloadhelper.
  • The current MBP is sort of dead in the water for users who follow the release calendar.  It's not a great time to go for one because there hasn't been an update of consequence for a while and ...
  • No, get one or two!  They're wonderful.  Use it to boot off of and to hold your images currently being worked on, and if your program uses a scratch disk (writing large amounts of temp files), ...
  • The Tamron AF 28-75mm F/2.8 you're considering is one I've owned for many years through several Pentaxes. It really is a nice lens and delivers images I like a lot. But in the category in question ...
  • As a K3 owner who has tried out several lenses in order to get better results capturing action in challenging conditions, I have found that it still underperformed when paired with excellent ...
  • Aside from SSDs still not yet being cost effective enough for big storage jobs, there are several potential issues with using them for archiving. For one, the jury is still out on how the ...
  • Thanks, all : )   I'll hit Google support.
  • Created discussion thread Nik plugins - half are working
    10.10.5 MBP 2011 16 gig ram Analog Fx Pro, Color Fx Pro, HDR, and Silver FX Pro all work as expected, both standalone and as plugin.  But the rest, Dfine, both Sharpeners and Vivenza don't launch ...
  • The most puzzling aspect of killing off Aperture is that they created a huge pool of Mac users who, many for the first time, had absolutely no reason to make their next computer a Mac. That's ...
  • A pretty similar situation as what I went through, having originally purchased it before the app store existed, therefore Apple had me as a registered user but the app store did not.  For some ...
  • If it hasn't already on these, I'd prepare for Little Snitch to go into super overdrive with phone home alerts like a never stopping car alarm.
  • This reflects my experience.  Always worked out well when I went with one.  The best deals are when you want a certain feature no longer in current models. For me it was a matte screen or ...
  • Finally the aliens who keep ignoring us will come and marvel at our planet.

  • It was somewhat of a tipoff when a preliminary reconnaissance mission to the Preferences showed...no preferences! :  ) Also that the presets are more like IOS app filters than other RAW editor presets.
  • Thanks for the heads up on this.  I guess I wasn't paying enough attention, but its arrival took me, someone still searching for a post Aperture platform to commit to, by surprise. Alas, not ready ...
  • I know I'm in the minority in this, but I never got the point of maintaining such large catalogs.  I keep ones for paid shoots and ones for family, and some larger subsections get their own.  And ...
